Day last: Hartford pregame

Kevin Poulin for the last game of the season. A few tweaks; Sebastian Collberg gets in for the finale, and Colin Markison’s out. The sick remain out. Hartford, locked into the third seed, has a bunch of changes from Friday. BRIDGEPORT F: Jeffrey (A)-Quine-Vaughan Johnston-Mouillierat (A)-Collberg Gillies-Sundstrom-Langkow Gallant-Brooks-Eberle D: Ness (C)-Pulock Pelech-Mayfield Carkner-Louis G: Poulin […] [Read More]

Time flies, seasons change: Syracuse liveblog

(One last request: Fake Team Awards balloting ends tonight.) Today is the fifth anniversary of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers’ last playoff win (and 12th of its last series win). Mikko Koskinen beat Braden Holtby in that last victory, Andrew MacDonald scored two power-play goals, Robin Figren had a goal and an assist: Bridgeport beat Hershey […] [Read More]

Travel delays: Hartford pregame

Charlottetown was eliminated last night. Ross Johnston was on his way but may not have made it out of the airport in time; was supposed to be in, but appears not tonight. (Well, maybe Bridgeport just announced his ATO, which probably means he’s in the building. But Brent Thompson this morning said he wasn’t going […] [Read More]

One last time: Manchester (2) pregame

Bridgeport and Manchester play their last game today. And it’s been all Manchester lately: The Monarchs have won the last seven, with Bridgeport taking only one point in overtime in those seven. Bridgeport’s top couple of lines, as we’re told anyway, revert roughly to what they were supposed to be yesterday, with Lukas Sutter in […] [Read More]

Big and small changes: Manchester (1) pregame

Kevin Poulin’s up. Don’t know if this would’ve been his turn, but Stephon Williams gets the nod anyway. Bridgeport signed WHL forward Calder Brooks to an ATO, but he’s not in the lineup tonight. So two changes that… may not have meant anything, anyway. The lineup’s juggled plenty otherwise, though Colin Markison for Lukas Sutter […] [Read More]

Crunch time: Syracuse liveblog

(But wouldn’t that header work better if) (Yes. Leave it alone.) We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer, Paul among others. We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). This should be the box (Voss, Kaval/Oliver, Trempe). Here’s the Manchester game as the Monarchs chase the Kilpatrick Trophy. If everything breaks right, they could clinch it […] [Read More]

Farewell, Sharks: Worcester pregame

Stephon Williams gets Start No. 2, and Brett Gallant returns for Bridgeport as Worcester makes its last trip in, replacing Mike Halmo in the lineup (hoping for an update after the game). There’s some rearrangement of the wings to accommodate all that. Kevin Czuczman gets back in, too, for Matt Carkner; was told that’s maintenance. […] [Read More]

You can do magic (for limited definitions): Syracuse pregame

Though there’ll be some fun in the last few weeks as the likes of Stephon Williams come ’round to give the pro game a whirl, the standings have been pretty well off the radar for a while in Bridgeport. But we’re fond of magic numbers in this space, so… Bridgeport will finish last in the […] [Read More]
